Goofing on The Bachelorette at least can be a bit of fun. With Still Star-Crossed, you're only likely to get tired head -- and in a hurry.

What remains to be seen is whether Still Star-Crossed can find that sweet spot again as it develops - or whether it will continue to coast along on its lavish, gorgeous aesthetic.

May 31, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

The writing is so scattered, it's hard to find anyone, Montague or Capulet, to root for. A plague on both their houses.

May 30, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Still Star-Crossed is off the tracks from the opening moments. Rhimes' customarily snappy dialogue has been replaced with something that sounds like special-ed Shakespeare, interrupted by the occasional thudding anachronism.

May 30, 2017 | Full Review…

It's all too little too late due to the confusing first half that won't be Shakespearean enough for scholars and too confusing for those long-removed from high school English class.

May 30, 2017 | Full Review…

The series feels like half-baked fan fiction tacked onto half-assed SparkNotes.
